Albert Xin Jiang, Ph.D.

Albert Xin Jiang is an assistant professor in the Department of Computer Science at Trinity University. He received his PhD from the Department of Computer Science at the University of British Columbia, and was a postdoctoral research associate in the TEAMCORE research group at the Department of Computer Science at the University of Southern California.

Much of his research is addressing computational problems arising in game theory, including the efficient computation of solution concepts such as Nash equilibrium, Stackelberg equilibrium and correlated equilibrium, as well as applications of game-theoretic computation to real-world domains such as large-scale infrastructure security and electronic commerce.
